Whether you keep, abort or adopt out, when you make one of those 3 choices, you are dealing with the situation.

Hard to say because I'm not in that situation so it's really hard to picture myself in it. Right now, I would absolutely not be able to afford two kids in daycare, but I could become a SAHM again. That would mean no vacations, barely any extra spending money, but we could do it again. If we were in a situation where we actually would not be able to make it, I'd probably abort.

I'd abort.



SO has three kids already.
I have one.



I am pregnant with our first together. Once this baby comes, we will have five kids.



I can't deal with more. Call me selfish, call me all you want...if I ever am pregnant again with 5 kids, I abort.



Buuuuuuut SO is getting a vasectomy after this baby comes so hopefully, I will never had to be placed in that situation.

I'd likely abort.



Lol @ so many women in here thinking that keeping it is the way to "man up" to this situation.

Honestly I would probably keep it, although I should abort for medical reasons. I had preeclampsia my 1st, PIH with my 2nd and hemmoraged both times, my last time being pretty bad almost needed a blood transfusion.



But I would probably keep it though and just hope for the best medical health wise.

Well, we had a broken condom a few weeks ago, so this very well could be my reality. Just waiting to see if Aunt Flo shows up in a few days or not. If I'm pregnant... in my heart, I think we'll figure it out somehow. Abortion could also be a possibility. I would never give the baby up for adoption, though.

I'm always afraid of this. My tubes are tied, but I'm terrified of the idea of that failing.



With my pregnancies I end up on bedrest (or a preemie) for a long time. They are very complicated pregnancies, lol. I moved and have no family close by now. How on earth would I manage caring for two toddlers while on bedrest? Even dealing with adoption at that point becomes a moot point, but I have no idea how I'd even manage to get to that point!



This is seriously a huge fear of mine, lol. I feel like I don't think I could abort, but at the same time I haven't a clue how I'd make it work.

I take Sprintec as well, so here is to hoping it worked in backing up the broken condom.



I'm terrified TBH.

*hugs* I'll have my fingers crossed for you.



It pisses me off when women talk about it like it's such an easy choice. "You had sex, deal with it." Um, f**k you. lol. There are a TON of factors involved, and rarely are any of these women abstinent. Or they have had perfect pregnancies and another would be no big deal. Sure, then it's EASY to say shit like that. However, if they had difficult pregnancies, or they COULDN'T afford another child, or anything else I think they'd change their opinions a bit.
